When ever we went through someone always said "Hi". The bar was again well taken care of the bartenders Katrina and Jason...

Located near the entrance to Siesta Key and close to the heart of Sarasota, this is a great location from which to plan your day trips. The rooms were adequate with a hot breakfast offered each morning. The pool was nice and has a bar located on the premise offering "Happy Hour" specials.

My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights: pool area was nice and had a bar but the staff seemed uninterested in taking drink orders and interested in watching the game on TV while having their back turned toward the customers. Quality of drinks was good though (if you could grab his attention to order). Room was neat and clean...

The hotel is not far from Siesta Key Florida, just crossing the waterway about one mile west of the hotel and you are on the Siesta Key. I do not like to write very negative things about places, but this hotel for the price is a joke. The only good thing about this hotel was the Housekeeping staff and the...

This is our second stay at this particular Best Western Plus. As our adult daughter was with us, we booked a suite. We stayed 3 nights so we got a very good rate. It was lovely having two bathrooms and TVs. There was a door between the living room section and the bedroom section so we really had privacy. Sarasota...

We have experienced many vacations at a Best Western location. The Best Western in Sarasota was so conveniently located to Siesta Key public beach. It was a 5 minute drive to the beach and the parking and access to the beach was the best i have encountered in Florida! First, the price at the Best Western was affordable for such...

This was a very clean hotel, and had super comfortable beds. There is a really nice pool area, with a pool bar and fire pit seating. Breakfast was also good and they offer a free shuttle to the beaches or any where near the hotel.

This hotel was a nice surprise! Very clean, nice selection for breakfast and a great pool/spa area. Shuttle available to take you to the beach or to the shops. Location is close to shops, drug stores and the beaches! Even has a great sitting area by the pool with a beautiful fire pit. Would definitely stay here again!

Very happy with the hotel. Loved the pool and the pool bar where you could get drinks and food. There was a great variety of food for breakfast. The hotel was very clean and the exterior was very attractive. Ice and soda machines on every floor was a definite plus. Recycling is very important to me and was very pleased...
